Kari Lehtonen

Hey guys, Leaf fan here.

I'm in a fantasy hockey league, and I am wondering if Kari Lehtonen will be the Thrashers #1 goalie next year. Does he have a shot? Or will he play in the AHL?

Thanks!

One man's guess is that barring injury he goes into camp already penciled in to NHL roster and fights for the #1. I'm not a large fan of Nurminen so I think he can win it

I remember reading somewhere that if the Thrashers can't provide solid enough defense for Lehtonen then he will most likely spend another season in Chigago, they don't want him to lose his confidence behind a terrible defense. (<--- I'm not absolutely sure about this thing 'cause I might have been sleeping/dreaming ) Whatever happens I think Lehtonen will play at least 20 games in NHL next season (IF there's a season).

There is zero chance of Lehtonen playing in the AHL this year instead of the NHL, unless there is a lock out.

Agreed. He is ready for the NHL.

Only question left is how many games will the kid play?

If there is a season, I see about 40-50 games. Lehtonen still needs to work on his strength and endurance. He seemed winded easily at prospect camp last week.

I read a story that the Thrashers' strength and conditioning coach was working with him.

What about Hannu Toivonen?

I'd say Toivonen's chances of cracking Atlanta's goalie rotation are pretty slim.

He probably will play in half, more or less, if Nurminen doesn't impress Coach Hartley.
